Osama Dead!?

This is a big day in history and if you are like me you have a lot of strange and mixed feelings about this. The beauty of poetry is finding a way to express a whole lot of complicated emotions in a succinct way. Write about today, what is your reaction? How do you feel?

Do it, share it!


  1. [CARTOON] Osama Bin Laden Killed

  2. As a writer and photographer, I have a photo-haiku blog where I post daily meditations. I have three entries that are related to the death of Osama bin Laden. I, too, had very mixed emotions and found it difficult to answer my friends when they asked me what I thought of the news. These short haiku and photographs were the only way I could respond at the time. I feel they are more negative-sounding than I intended. But they are a knee-jerk response to how the media was covering the event and how citizens were reacting as though we'd just won a football game. As Maggie mentioned, it's "complicated."
